Hi! my name is Alyssa.

So last month on instagram (you can find me here: @lyssadawson) everyone and their mom was doing the 5 things post. I'm the kind of person that never gets picked for things like this and I was definitely perturbed that no one ever picked me. 
I know, wahh wahh. 
In the end my sil did pick me, but I forgot to actually do the post. 
So, I thought it would be fun to also post it on the blog!

I can touch my tongue to my nose, but it's not a pretty sight when I do.  Sometimes it reminds me of the bitter beer man... yeah.

Throughout my young life, before I got married, I always slept with the blankets untucked from the matress. If they weren't untucked I couldn't fall asleep.  I liked to have them wrapped around my feet to keep me extra warm.

In 7th and 8th grade I was captain of the volleyball team.  Freshman year of high school I wasn't told about volleyball tryouts so I missed them and had to hang up the knee pads and booty shorts for a seat on the bleachers.

I once was obsessed with Shia LaBeouf, I had a whole book that was dedicated to the movie Holes and Even Stevens only because he was in them.  You could have called it creepy because it was.  Just a note, this was before the creepy beard and long hair era.

When I was 12 I had just moved to a new house and a new ward.  I left all my friends that I had known for 8 years and had to find a way to  make new ones, but I was shy. At my new ward I was made fun of, no one ever sat by me, and no one wanted to be my friend until one day when I was leaving church.  I was walking out of the church and to the car when I told my mom that I didn't want to go to church anymore because everyone was so mean.  Moments later I hear one of the older girls calling my name, she gave me something and told me that she was glad to have me in young womens and that she wanted to sit by me next week in church.  This is one of the first of many experiences where I knew my Heavenly Father was looking out for me, that He was really there and that he wanted to know I was of great worth.  (more on the rest of the story later.)

  1. I didn't know there were people who slept with the blankets tucked into the mattress. I couldn't do it, I like you, have to have them wrapped around my feet. That sucks about Volleyball. I wanted to be on the team so bad and was excited at tryouts only to have the coach tell me that although she could tell I was good, another girl had "seniority" as she had been on the team the year before. A month later she quit the team and I was upset for a while. :/
    Although Shia may not be clean cut these days he's still an amazing actor. One of my favorite. I think Tru Confessions was where I fell in love with him as an actor.

  2. I love the outfit in this post! I pretty much live in jeans, boots, and cardigans--glad to see someone else rocking the same style with so much color!

  3. I love the sweater and the overall color scheme!

  4. First of all that outfit is super cute! What a fun way to pair the different colors and patterns. I wish I was creative like that!

    I'm assuming your LDS from your #5, thats neat! Me too! Heavenly Father sure had a hand in that one! So glad there are people out there in tune to the spirit that know when its time to act on a prompt.

  5. You look so cute!! I seriously want those pants! I love the color of them

  6. i think we already established how we have the same life in terms of the moving thing.... it was so amazing to me to read your story and hear someone else have a similar experience. so crazy!

    and the Shia Lebouf thing?? AMAZING!!! you are awesome :)
